    9. Interesting

    11. It's a lame answer, but I don't have a favorite. I use websters a lot, though.

    1. I LOVE your cat's name!! That's so awesome! I like Keera, too!

  2. Great answers. Your dog is cute. You have the same pet peeve as me. Ben Barnes is indeed gorgeous. And I love Christmas too. It's so magical.

    1. Ahaha!! We have similar interests! Love it! :D

  3. Ahh! The Jasper cuteness! ^_^ I love cuddle-sized dogs, but we live rural with five cats, any dog we get needs to be bigger just to make it fair.

    I got a kindle for christmas too ... I still haven't read off it, despite the ten eBooks I now own. I'm a paperback-loving gal.

    1. I live in an apartment that doesn't allow dogs! :( I guess it's okay though, I wouldn't have time to properly care for him, so I'll wait!

      I love paperback, too! But I like my kindle for school books, so much easier to carry the kindle instead of a million books!

  4. I'm always relieved when no one tags me. Not that I'd do it anyway.

    Of course my pet peeve is when people use "Your" instead of "You're" in blog titles...

  5. Thank you for telling me! I usually catch things like that, but of course not today!

  6. Oh my gosh! My biggest Pet peeve is hearing people chew too! And... I LOVE The New Girl!

    And I just posted on this but I'd love to answer your questions. :)

    1. Akara (in my current querying MS) because she's so broken but is determined not to be.
    2. Burnt Orange
    3. Harry Potter. Any and All. Though I really like the newest Pride and Prejudice.
    4. Can't choose just one...sorry ;)
    5. I have a doggy too! Her name is Sasha. She is a Shiba Inu Mix. There's a pic of her in my post today :)
    6.I play soccer twice a week. So much fun.
    7. I have visited Canada, Germany, France, Austria, Switzerland and Ireland.
    8. I WANT to go sky diving, but my mom made me promise not to until she's passed away. Hopefully I have to wait a while ;)
    10. Phone, that sounds so horrible but it has my work calendar in it, etc. I'd be so lost without it.
    11. I like Ladies Who Critique. That's where I found my first CP :)

    1. I love Pride and Prejudice!! Aww!!! Sasha is a great name for a pup! I tried to play soccer with my boyfriend. I'm not good, so I cheat! lol.
